Weight Loss Tip: When trying to lose weight it is a good idea to have some long term goals. For example, you could try to run 200 miles on the treadmill by the end of the month. Constantly striving for that number could be all the motivation that you need to keep up a fitness program for an entire month and subsequently lose a lot of weight.
Tired of doing crunches to work your core? The plank is a phenomenal exercise that gives you the option of doing something other than a crunch to work your abs. This three-minute plank workout takes advantage of how variable the plank can be while still pushing you to work hard and strengthen your core.
Here’s what the workout looks like. Each plank variation is held for 30 seconds:
– Plank with leg raises
– Side plank on right arm
– Side plank on left arm
– Spiderman Planks
If you need to take a break during one of the planks, just place your knees on the ground and rest for a bit, then once you’re ready go back into the plank.
If you get done with this workout and want to work your core even more, you can try this core workout too:
